Gavin and Miriel have added quite a few babies to their group of friends recently! I had a fun time photographing two of them, Ella and Charlie, who were both born in January. These were the first newborns I have photographed, and the first time using a 2-light setup (Charlie's photos only) so it was definitely a learning experience! Both babies are about 2 1/2 months old now, but these photos are from when they were about 2 weeks old.

Ella belongs to our dear friends Jason and Amy. They have a special place in my heart for lots of reasons, but most recently because much of their experience with Ella so far is similar to our experience with Gavin when he was a baby. It is a difficult time for them but they are persevering and doing an amazing job loving their beautiful baby girl, no matter the circumstances. My favorite thing right now about Ella is her adorable cooing! Those little happy noises just get my heart.

Charlie belongs to David and Amber. We have known David for a while but have only known Amber since they moved to Portland last summer. It has been fun to watch David as a father, and I have really enjoyed Amber's friendship through our pregnancies and now as we both have newborns. I really love Charlie's forehead wrinkles and how much he looks like his dad!
